Willowview is an excellent example of a highly fertile dairy farm located in a very productive farming district.

Annually they calf down 405 cows milking approximately 395 per season. 300 calves are grazed on the platform up till they reach 100Kg. The quality of the improvements is also a real bonus to the property, these include two homes, 20 aside double cupped dairy shed, 8 bay calf shed, 2 x 4 bay implement shed plus other farm buildings.
The property has the benefit of irrigation consisting of 85 noic shares delivering irrigation to 109ha. The soil structure is ideal for the K Line irrigation resulting in excellent pasture growth.
Approximately 4.5 ha of Fodder beet is fed to the milking herd at various times in the season.
The property is an ideal smaller dairy unit providing excellent returns to an owner.
